Château Clerc Milon formed part of the vast estates of the seigneury of Lafite. Sold as a “national asset” in the Revolution, it was acquired then by the Clerc family, which joined its name to that of Milon, the Pauillac hamlet where the estate is located. The rank of Fifth Growth bestowed on it in the famous 1855 Classification is evidence of its standing, even then, among the elite Médoc châteaux. 

AROMA AND PALATE:
The wines are rich, with a deep colour and an attractive tannic structure, both full-bodied and pleasantly fresh even though 2017 is a “solar” vintage. Less wine was made than in an average year because of the drought.
